I know everyone has their ‘thing’ they immediately think of when a baby is fussy. Some think it must be gas, others they must be hungry. For me, I go to teething. And so far I think I have been right. Any time he has a hard time with naps, or is a little clingy or unhappy, I think a tooth is close by. There are a few more concrete signs too. The drool. Oh the drool this baby can produce! He also isn’t as hungry for his solid foods. Well, he always has room for banana, but he prefers the softer foods or just isn’t as hungry. And he chews on EVERYTHING! I know, babies use their mouths to explore so this is a pretty common behavior. But when Ben is gnawing hard on everything in sight I know teeth are to blame.
This weekend I was positive that Ben’s next tooth was almost out. All the signs were there. While we were out on a walk this happened:
|I promise we feed him. 🙂|
The top left tooth has popped out now. Yep, teething. 🙂 Four teeth are in so far. Every time I see those little teeth I can’t believe how much he has grown!
